8. Standard periods for the deletion of data

At present, the periods for the obligation of data retention and for the deletion of personal data are not clearly specified by law for all areas as in many areas the jurisdiction requires an adjustment of these periods. In any and all areas where regulations exist, we already routinely fulfil the obligation to delete your data: This applies particularly to the following data and periods:

  • Connection data
    Data will be deleted in accordance with the specifications of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) upon the expiry of the legally required data retention periods, provided that such data have been collected at all.
  • Applicant data and personal data
    Data will be deleted in accordance with the specifications of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the accompanying further provisions, e.g. General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) after not more than six months or, as the case may be, upon the expiry of the legally required period of retention (usually after ten years).

    Data will be deleted in accordance with the specifications of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) upon the expiry of the legally required data retention periods (usually after ten years).

Data will be deleted upon the expiry of such periods at the latest. In accordance with article 28 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the parties entering an objection will be noted in a restricted list in order to be able to ascertain the effectiveness of the objection.

If for technical or organizational reasons a deletion of data is not possible, your data will be locked against further processing or utilization in conformity with the data protection provisions.

We have taken numerous measures to protect your data. It would be counterproductive to provide any details as this would make the structure itself easier to attack.

We assure you, however, that according to the requirements on a company our size we have taken a variety of measures in conformity with the following provisions of article 9 and annex of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and that we permanently improve such measures:

  • Physical access control
